lyrics

Shifting

Feel how the wind still blows
Solemn oaks keep growing
And the songs come flowing
Hide, hide me from the silence

Feel how my cheeks are aching
Smile when I'm close to breaking
And the words fall empty
Shelter, shelter from the silence

Times have gone and times will come
When I might hope it stays like this, it stays like this…

Times have gone and times will come
When I might wish it's never this, it's never this again...
It's never this again
It's never this again

Backed into a corner
Scared to breathe, scared to think
Scared to speak at all
I'm not you
You're not me
What monsters are we?

Hiding in the space between
The good and ugly
Scared to peek at all
What is safe?
What is home?
Silence is golden.

Help me antagonise my mind
I'll help you to scrutinise your soul
Let's be the heroes and then let's act the villains
In this gruesome play-by-play
With the guilt I'm gonna carry
I'll torment the visions in your brain
Let's customise the very beasts
That can ruin and can save

Turn another page
Love feebly 'til the new day
Remember what went down
How can it mean anything
In the light of the morning?

Strip the cupboards bare.
The silence rings in empty air
Unravel what went down
How can you undo anything
You've shrouded in the silence?
